Polymer Clay Canes for Beginners

27 videos, step by step, beginner cane workshop beginner Cane Tutorial What people are saying about this tutorial. jennifer rose Just finished this first workshop on how to make canes, and I must say I learned so much. This is exactly what I have been looking for, someone who could explain cane making in a step by step that process that I could replicate. I watched the videos, went into my studio and began to create all of the canes Alice showed. I finally have results I can be proud of, and I say thank you so much for doing this workshop. My only question now is when do we get more workshops. If you are only going to take one online class let it be this workshop. Thank you Alice for your hard work, and your dedication to helping others learn the joys of polymer clay.

Orlando Clay Fandango – Video – The Instructors and Demo Queens

I can’t believe I’ve been home from Fandango for a week already. I have lots to share with you.

First I want to thank all the volunteers that help make Orlando Clay Fandango the success that it always is. Eva, Charlene, Nancy, Mary, Kem, Linda, Rose Anne, Nita and Tanya. I know I’ve left out dozens and I apologize. Please let me know and I’ll add to the list.

I know I’ve met some wonderful people because of Fandango and experienced some ah ha moments in clay.

Sherry McKinney and I hit the road and arrived at Lake Yale on Thursday and from then on it was nonstop until we headed home on Monday. Sherry and I are the only constant polymer clayers we know in Sebring.

I set up my display in the Boutique and everyone had a good laugh about my redheaded friend. But I think the hands got more comments.

I was one of the demonstrators this year and I was busy showing how I use pen and ink on polymer clay. The bracelet below is a sample of what I shared and was my donation for the raffle. I’m thrilled that Linda Easton won.

Here are some of the results of the three full day of classes with some incredible instructors. Because I don’t know the names of all the clayers that created the pieces below, I took the easy way out and didn’t name anyone. If you see your work, please add your name in the comments section. There is a method to it, I’ll get you to comment maybe. hehe.

Barbara McGuire’s classes

Doreen Kassel’s classes

Meredith Arnold’s classes

Linda Hess’s demo

Susan Clark was also demonstrating this year but had to leave early and missed our video.
And last but not least, this video I made featuring the Instructors and Demonstrators for 2012.

Thanks again to everyone at Orlando Clay Fandango 2012 I have it from the source that you can still save $25.00 if you sign up for next year’s Fandango by the end of May and they will be announcing who the instructors will be in the next few days. So keep checking their website for updates.

And then we had to say goodbye, but it was wonderful to see friends again.

I’m going to try to make Stroppel cane beads for the backs of my Meredith Arnold metal etched disks, so wish me luck. I’ll let you see the result. Thank you Barbara, Doreen, and Linda also, all of you rock, no clay! Well, you were terrific, hardworking, enthusiastic and creative. Loved it.
